About Me

At Lehigh, I wear multiple hats: I am the dean of Lehigh’s College of Business and Economics, a professor of accounting with an emphasis on financial analysis and governance, and an author of a market-leading financial statement analysis text. I strongly believe that the creation and dissemination of knowledge are inextricably intertwined, and that the academy plays an important societal role in advancing positive change. At Lehigh, I am fortunate to work with a community of research colleagues, Lehigh students, and alumni based everywhere throughout the world from the south side of Bethlehem to the teaming suburbs of Shanghai.

Prior to coming to Lehigh, I spent over 20 years at NYU’s Stern School of Business. My last post was the associate dean of Executive MBA Programs and academic director of TRIUM, NYU Stern’s global executive MBA program in alliance with the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and HEC School of Management, Paris. I was also a past chair of the Department of Accounting, Taxation and Business Law at NYU Stern.
